Real-time imaging applications are concerned with efficient and deterministic processing of digital images. These applications are predominantly written using structured programming rather than object-oriented programming with the belief that the former approach has better performance characteristics. Current research shows that this may not be the case and an object-oriented approach may not only result in efficient code but one that is more maintainable and understandable. We look at current techniques for visualizing the code for software applications to determine if they can help predict its qualities such as maintainability, understandability and performance, and suggest ways in which these techniques can be enhanced to meet the specific needs of real-time imaging applications.
